As for the tail lights, I'm not sure. The lights don't blend in as they aren't flush with the surface.
I did that to my v6 and put a thin piece of vinyl tape and put 4 heavy coats then took the tape of a put I light coat and it did mimik the led side markers except they were not as bright as the led but it did the trick.

while they look cool, its an accident waiting to happen (pun intended).

normally, getting rear-ended would be the fault of the 2nd car, but in this case, that might not be true.

okay so today I see a California Patrol Car passing thru my neighborhood on a rutting route so i decided to ask him about the tail lights. I asked him if he would stop me for having these tail lights. At first he said no off the bat because he thought they came like that and after i told him i painted them he went on a looked closer and said well by law if you cannot see the taillight more than 1000 ft than its not going to be dot approved and illegal, I asked him if he can get on his car and drive 1000 ft to see if he sees my hazards blinking during the day time. When he came back he said they where visible at 1000 ft and that they don't look as if they where modified and he thought it was just there new design but that was just his opinion but just wanted to add this.
